When I was a little girl, I would watch in fascination as my Christian friends opened up their daily advent calendars. As if Christmas wasn’t exciting enough, there was a daily countdown of treats to explore. So you can imagine my thrill when I saw Ramadan countdown calendars start to show up on Pinterest.
Being the decor snob (and lazy person) I am, I bought one that fit my home aesthetics. My other requirement: space to hold good deed messages & chocolate coins.
I bought the above calendar from Handmade Beginnings, which shows the moon phases on lovely blue fabric. But I actually love the kitschy DIY calendars that moms make for their kids because they are so colorful and festive.
Here is a list of my favorite countdown calendars, for sale and for DIY!
- Handmade Beginnings
- With A Spin Decorative Moon and Star Countdown
- SimplyImpressions DIY Treat Box Instructions
- Little Life Of Mine DIY Balloon Countdown
- Sweet Fajr DIY Mini Mosque Countdown
- Amal Design Countdown Cards
- Amazon Ramadan Tracker Calendar
I created these Ramadan Good Deed Slips in Word Docs, which I plan to cut out and put into the individual pockets. Every day my kids will get a new good deed, and after iftar, when they’ve completed it, they will get a chocolate coin or treat. I like the chocolate coins because they are shiny and flat. I recommend these chocolate coins from Amazon!
If you are looking for a mode sophisticated Ramadan calendar alternative. I highly recommend the advent-style calendar from Ramadan To Remember.
Peace & Salam,
